A) New National Biogas and Organic Manure Programme (NNBOMP):
The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Govt of India is providing Central Financial Assistance for family size Biogas Plants under NNBOM Programme since 1982-83 onwards. NREDCAP is the Nodal Agency to Andhra Pradesh State for implementing the Programme.
NREDCAP has constructed and commissioned 2,97,137 Nos of family size Biogas Plants up to 2018-19 as against the total estimated potential of 6.30 Lakh Biogas Plants. The year wise District wise Targets & Achievement of Biogas Plants from 2014-15 to 2018-19 are shown in the enclosed Annexure -I. MNRE has allocated 4000 Nos of Biogas Plants for the year 2019-20 and the District wise allocation of targets are shown in Annexure - A.
MNRE, GoI, New Delhi is providing Central Financial Assistance to these family size Biogas Plants under NNBOM Programme for the year 2019-20 is as follows:

B) National Project on Improved Chulhas:
The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Govt of India has provided Central Financial Assistance for Improved Chulhas from 1983-84 to 2002-03. NREDCAP is the Nodal Agency to Andhra Pradesh State for implementing the Programme.
MNRE, Govt of India, New Delhi has transferred the Scheme / Programme to the State Government from the financial year 2003-04 for implementation under State Plan Scheme for the benefit of rural women and children.
NREDCAP has constructed / distributed 22,38,260 Nos of Improved Chulhas up to 2018-19. The year wise District wise Targets & Achievement of Improved Chulhas from 2014-15 to 2018-19 are shown in the enclosed Annexure -II.
C) Biogas Based Power Project (BGGP):
The Biogas based Power Projects (up to 250 KW) consists of Biogas Plant, Gas cleaning system, 100% Biogas Engine with alternator and Control Panel. The Biogas produced from the plant having Hydrogen Sulphide which is very harmful to the engine, which has to be removed to the Gas Cleaning System.
MNRE, Govt of India, New Delhi is providing Central Financial Assistance to these Biogas based Power Projects meant for captive consumption @ Rs. 35,000/- per KW. The year wise Biogas based Power Projects commissioned from 2007-08 to 2018-19 are shown in the enclosed Annexure -III.
D) Biomass Grid Connected Power Projects:
Biomass is one of the important renewable energy sources for power generation. The agriculture residues like paddy husk, cotton, maize, sun flower, chilly stalks, ground nut shells, forest residues, agro industrial residues, biomass from energy plantations etc come under the category of biomass.
The total Biomass Grid Connected Power Projects existing in the residual Andhra Pradesh comes to 171.25 MW capacity (31 Projects) which were commissioned prior to 2009 having PPA approved by APERC are shown in the enclosed Annexure - IV.
E) Biomass Co-Gen Power projects:
The Biomass based co-generation Power Projects are being promoted in the Industries where biomass is generated to meet the captive power requirements and to export surplus power to the grid as per tariff fixed by APERC.
The total Biomass based Co-gen Power Projects existing in the residual Andhra Pradesh is 65.45 MW capacity (26 Projects) which were commissioned are shown in the enclosed Annexure - V.
F) Bagasse based Co-Gen Power Projects:
The Bagasse based Co-Gen Power Projects are being promoted in the Sugar Mills to meet the captive power requirements and to export surplus power to the grid as per tariff fixed by APERC.
The total Bagasse Co-gen Power Projects existing in the residual Andhra Pradesh is 206.95 MW capacity (16 Projects) which were commissioned prior to 2009 are shown in the enclosed Annexure - VI.
G) Industrial Waste Power Projects:
The Power Projects based on Industrial Waste such as Poultry litter, Palm Oil Waste, Starch Waste etc are also promoted in the State of Andhra Pradesh.
The total Industrial Waste Power Projects existing in the residual Andhra Pradesh is 40.01 MW capacity (13 Projects) are shown in the enclosed Annexure - VII.
H) Municipal Solid Waste based Power Projects:
The total Municipal Solid Waste based Power Projects existing in the residual Andhra Pradesh is 6.15 MW capacity (2 Projects) are shown in the enclosed Annexure - VIII.
In addition to the above, the Govt of Andhra Pradesh has authorized NREDCAP to undertake a tariff based bidding to select the developers for implementing MSW based Waste to Energy Projects on Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer (DBFOT) basis with an objective of to dispose the Municipal Solid Waste in a Scientific manner.
Accordingly, NREDCAP has completed a tariff bidding process and LOA was issued for an aggregate capacity of 71 MW in 11 Clusters. The quoted tariff ranges between Rs. 6.165 to Rs. 7.50 / Unit. Executions of all these projects are under the supervision of MA&UD Department.
Only two projects of 15 MW capacity each are under execution at Guntur (tariff @ Rs. 6.165 / KWh) & Visakhapatnam (tariff Rs. 6.226 / KWh) Clusters and the remaining are cancelled by MA&UD Department.
